The Drug Enforcement Administration's Management of Enterprise Architecture and Information Technology Investments
Report Number 04-36
Office of the Inspector General
We have audited the DEA's management of Enterprise Architecture and IT investments. The audit was conducted in accordance with Government Auditing Standards. As required by the standards, we reviewed management processes and records to obtain reasonable assurance about the DEA's compliance with laws and regulations that, if not complied with, in our judgment, could have a material effect on DEA operations. Compliance with laws and regulations applicable to the DEA's handling of Enterprise Architecture and IT investments is the responsibility of the DEA's management.
Our audit included examining, on a test basis, evidence about laws and regulations. The specific laws and regulations against which we conducted our tests are contained in the relevant portions of the Clinger-Cohen Act of 1996 and OMB Circular A-11, Section 300.
